2017 Honda SXS700M4H
The liquid-cooled 675 cc single-cylinder engine has tons of torque and plenty of power. Fuel injection means it starts right up, even on cold days or at high altitude. And the engine is shear-mounted in its own cradle to help reduce vibration.
The automotive-style automatic transmission uses a heavy-duty torque converter with three hydraulic clutches. It’s tough, with no belts to worry about, and also smart — a two-stage shift map senses when you’re aggressive or light with the throttle, and optimizes power delivery accordingly.
Paddle shifters on the steering wheel allow you to override the transmission’s shift points on the fly, or switch to MT mode and use the paddles to shift manually. Fully automatic, automatic with manual override, or fully manual -- you get to choose.
Easily shift from 2WD to 4WD. And when you’re in 4WD mode and you need extra traction, just use the lever on the Pioneer’s dash to lock the front differential for extra grip in the toughest situations.
